The Brown Bag Renovation Project

The Brown Bag has been a part of the Monticello community for the past 43 years and we are proud of the service and food we provide but the building is another matter! The building is one of the oldest in town and it is starting to show it's age. The restaurant has been privately owned and operated since the beginning and the family is struggling to come up with the funds to make the necessary improvements. We feel that the Brown Bag is a part of the town, community and people's lives! It is exciting to think about the community pulling together to help one of it's own! I hope any of you that have ever enjoyed a meal with us or have happy memories at the Brown Bag are excited to join us in restoring it to its former glory!   Thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you!
